Ex-Grid Stars
To Play Again
For Michigan
Derricotte, Culligan
To Return Next Fall
Michigan football hopes were bol-
stered considerably yesterday when
it was learned that two former foot-
ball stars, Gene, Derricotte and Bill
Culligan, will return to the gridiron
wars for the Maize and Blue next
fall.
Derricotte, who hails from Defiance,
Ohio, is at present a lieutenant in
the Army Air Forces, but he expects
his discharge in July. He was a
triple-threat halfback on the 1944
Wolverine team, specializing in punt-
ing and running, averaging 5.6 yards
a try when carrying the ball, and
scoring 24 points. He is all set for
three more years of varsity compe-
tition.
A native of Detroit, Culligan was
all-City from Cooley High School in
1942 and played in the 1943 and 1944
Michigan teams while a student in

ed to activities today due to Senior

al day for checking out lockers.
the Navy V-12 program. An excel-
lent passer, the small, 5 ft., 8 in.
star was also an outstanding ground
gainer on the 1944 squad, averaging
five yards a try.
Both of these fellows are left half-
backs, and between them scored 48
of Michigan's 204 points in the 1944
season.
Truman Laughs Off
Pirates' Ball Strike
WASHINGTON, June 6 -()P)-
President Truman laughingly denied
today any plans to seize the Pitts-
burgh Pirates baseball club which
has been threatened with a strike.
If he {had to take over all the ball
players who might go on a strike,
the President replied, he would have
two damn good teams in St. Louis.
The President, who is from Mis-
souri, joined in the general laughter
that followed the question -and his
reply.

STRIKE TWO
By WALT KLEE
Daily Sports Staff
AN OTHERWISE successful season for the Michigan State baseball team
was spoiled when Ray Fisher's Wolverine nine shut out the Spartans, 2-0
on their home grounds Wednesday night behind the brilliant two hit pitch-
ing of Earl Block. The Maize and Blue, meanwhile, were handcuffed by
Robin Roberts, getting but four base hits for the evening's work.
The Spartans had won 20 of their 24 starts up to the start of the
game and had beaten three of the four teams that had defeated them in
earlier games. Their reputation with their "most hated rival," the only
team the Spartans had not defeated at least once was at stake. No sea-
son could truly be called a success when State dropped two out of two
to the Wolverines.
As can always be expected when the Spartans meet the Wolverines,
tension will be high and the fans are in for an exciting ball game. Wed-
nesday's twilight game was no exception and upwards of 5,000 fans jammed
their way into Old College Field to watch what developed into a pitching
duel between two truly outstanding right handers.
Before the game, the MSC coach; John Kobs remarked, "the team
with the greatest staying power will win this one." The mentor's pro-
phesy came true because it was the Spartans themselves that presented
the Wolverines with the margin of victory.
AFTER TOM ROSEMA had walked to lead off the seventh inning for the
Wolverines, right fielder Bob Chappuis laid a perfect bunt down the
third baseline. Third baseman Harry Hughes made a nice pickup and in-
stead of throwing the ball to retire the batter, hesitated, then threw late
to second. That left two men on base and no outs for the Wolverines.
Dom Tomasi followed suit with a bunt, this time down the first base-
line. Jack Breslin fielded the ball perfectly and almost made a late play
at second before he threw to Bob Groves covering first. The throw
beat the Wolverine second baseman by a scant foot. Had Hughes not
had a mental lapse two Wolverines would have been out.
Elmer Swanson walked to fill the bases setting the stage for Block to
come to bat. The big right hander received a tremendous ovation from
the crowd which showed a remarkable amount of sportsmanship through-
out the game. Block hit a slow roller to shortstop, Marty Hansen throwing
to Groves for the forceout. On the play Rosema crossed the plate with
the winning run, a run that wouldn't have scored save for the mental error.
IN THE EIGHTH the'Wolverines put the game on ice on one doubtful hit
and two errors. Don Robinson hit a bounder to the left side of the infield.
Hughes crossed in front of Hansen's line of sight causing Hansen to mis-
judge the ball. However the State shortstop did get one hand on the ball
before it glanced off into left field.
Nick Kerbawy, the Spartan Athletic Publicity man called the play a
hit. The concensus of opinion of the other writers in the press box was about
fifty per cent each way, hit or error.
On the second pitch the Wolverine speedster took off in the direction
of second. Bucky Walsh's throw, which was too late to catch the fleet-
footed baserunner, went sliding into centerfield. Robinson regained his
feet and started off towards third. Meanwhile Ed Sobezak had retrieved
the ball and sent it winging its way in the general direction of third.
The ball clipped Marty Hansen on the back of the head and bounced
at least twenty feet into the air. Bliss Bowman, coaching on third, saw the
play and waved Robinson on in to score. Sobczak was charged with an er-
ror on the poorly directed throw. But his play was another mental lapse
on the part of the Spartans. Robinson could not be caught going into third
and the proper play would have been to the plate to stop the baserunner
at third.
EVEN THE WOLVERINES were guilty of faulty play afield. Both Walt
Kell and Robinson were charged with errors when in their hurry to make

Bowman Slated To Hurl;
Face Irish Tomorrow
Michigan Seeks Second Win Over Broncos;
Wise To Pitch Against Irish At South Bend

Highlights -- World of Sports

In hopes of running their season
win record to 18, the Michigan base-I
ball team will be on the road today
and tomorrow, facing Western Mich-
igan and Notre Dame, two teams that
will be seeking revenge for earlier
defeats at the hands of the Wol-
verines.
Bliss Bowman will take the mound
in today's contest in Kalamazoo to
face the Broncos who fell before Ray'
Fisher's squad by a 5-0 score in Ann
Arbor on May 7. Cliff Wise will seek
his sixth win of the seasonagainst
the Irish in tomorrow's game at!
South Bend.
Rossi To Hurl for Broncos
Michigan's batters will probably
face the southpaw slants of Ed Rossi
in Kalamazoo as the Broncos seek
an even break in two games with
the Wolverines. Leading the Bronco
attack will be two players who have
been selected to play in the All-Star
game in Boston's Fenway Park on
June 14, namely Ivan Flecer and
Fred Stevens.
Flecer mans one of the post~s in
the Western picket line, while Stevens

holds down the first base position.
Both players are known for their
long ball hitting in spite of their
showing in Ann Arbor, when they
failed to collect a single safe hit.
Face Irish Tomorrow
In tomorrow's game the Wolverines
will be after their fifth straight win
over the Irish in two seasons. Three
times last season the Notre Dame
nine fell before the powerful bats of
the Michigan squad.
In an earlier game this season,
Wise, Bowman and Earl Block held
the Irish to five hits as the Maize
and Blue came out on the long end
of a 7-1 score. The Wolverines got
to Jack Barrett, leading hurler on
Coach Jake Klein's nine, for nine
safeties.
Barrett Will Seek Revenge
The Wolverines will face Barrett
again in the season wind-up as he
seeks to avenge the three defeats the
Wolverines have handed him over a
two-year period. The righthander
is regarded by experts as one of the
best Major League prospects in col-
lege baseball circles this season.
The Wolverines take to the road
for their final two games of the sea-
son a record of 16 wins and 3 losses,
only two of which came at the hands
of college teams.
Also high in the hopes of the Wol-
verines is the fattening of their bat-
ting averages which have been slip-
ping since the half-way mark in the
season when three men on the squad
were batting over .400 and three
more comfortably over the .300 mark.
Lloyd House in Finals
After playing a nine inning
scoreless tie on Tuesday, Lloyd
House defeated Greene House yes-
terday, 8-5, in another over-the-
limit ball game and won the right
to enter the Residence Halls finals
against Hinsdale House today.
The winners pushed over three
runs in the top of the eighth last
night to sew up the game..

Ruffing Rolls On
NEW YORK, June 6 -P)- Red
Ruffing, veteran New York Yankee
righthander, blanked the Chicago
White Sox, 4-0, today for his fourth
straight victory and the 269th of his
21-year major league career.
Big Red yielded only four singles
and fanned four batters while walk-
ing three to give the Yanks a clean,
sweep of the three-game series. It
also was Ruffing's 46th shutout.
New York jumped on starter John-
ny Rigney for three runs in the first
inning on two singles and three walks
with Manager Bill Dickey, who was
celebrating his 39th birthday, knock-
ing in two runs.
